Day 6: The Power of Encircling Truth

From the 40 Days of Daily Bread Series.

belt-truthWe have been studying the Armor of God. We’ve looked at the Helmet of Salvation and the Breastplate of Righteousness. Today we look at the Girdle or Belt of Truth,whichguards the loins.

Why do you need it?

The enemy will try to attack what you do for God’s glory, but the truth of His Word inside you is a prevailing power.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth… Ephesians 6:14 KJV

The loins are the pivotal point in the body, being between the ribs and the hip bone, and are understandably a sensitive area. In the Bible, loins sometimes refers to procreative power. This symbolizes what God has put in you to do for Him. Your calling will include your gifts and abilities, which you need to have encircled with His truth.

There is a war on and the devil would love to take you out. (Ephesians 6:12) Don’t let him! The only way to guard your destiny in God is to be continually surrounded by His truth.

Daily BreadApply the Word

This section is to help us respond to His promptings. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22

  • Girdle/Belt of Truth

Pray the Lord will help you to know His truth. Write the following scripture locations and the declarations after them in your journal. Doing this will help you know these truths.

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free John 8:32 NKJV (I know the truth.)

Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble. 2Peter 1:10 NKJV (I will diligently make my calling sure.)

You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. John 15:16 NKJV (I will produce good fruit.)

For we cannot oppose the truth, but must always stand for the truth. 2 Corinthians 13:8 NLT (I will stand for truth.)

Question: What has God called you to do?

The way to guard my destiny in God is to be always surrounded by His truth. [Tweet this]

Our Daily Bread for tomorrow will be about peace in decisions.

  1. Yes! I am going to be encircled with the power of His Truth!

    Joh 18:37 ……. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

  2. I had never heard of that insight before about the Girdle of Truth. I found it fascinating! It makes so much sense that Satan would try to distract us from walking in the works the Lord prepared for us to do before the worlds began.

    This post has spurred me on to always have the Belt of Truth fastened and secure.
